Re: Running rich

HI, I had the same with my 1200, the needles were worn terribly and replacing them with the cheapest set jet kit from eBay :) , helped a lot. Furthermore, a complete revision of the carbs, with material from Randakk, expensive but good, helps. Enjoy the fun (After ~75 times cleaning Goldwing carbs I...

Re: New (to me) 78 GL1000, advice wanted

Welcome Whiteclad...57 Common problems, as I have had many gl1000's, I can tell: 1) Probably they set the high idle because of idle circuit problem, as the idle circuit is very small and difficult to properly clean. The bike is possibly idling on the main circuit now, but no, there is no major issue...

Re: Battery type

Yep, happens to me too, but I am getting a bit more precise as when to recharge or plug in a different bike.
Once the battery is below 10 V for a longer period, forget it ..., my opinion.
So I have 2 battery tender for 4 bikes and change them every 3-4 weeks. All AGM, by the way

Re: Battery type

Hi all, I have 4 20Ah Goldwing batteries to maintain, and I can only say that the AGM really do last. However, forget about the yellow brands, the red brands, I have had some of these replaced within 2 years. Yuasa is always good and not much more expensive.I have the following tips for you: -Use a ...

Re: GL1200I Rear suspension

Hi Carl, The spring clip is easy to remove, but indeed you first have to push back the seals against the pressure of the spring. You need to construct a rig to push this in and at the same time still have access to the spring clip. I always use a thick wall PVC pipe, notched for access to the spring...

Re: GL1200I Rear suspension

Yes, you can repair the shocks, they are in fact the same as the ones from the gl1100, bit different spring rate though. The set should contain, seals and bearing bushes, but the latter can still be ordered from Honda. It's a dirty job as you'll have to drive the seals out with compressed air and th...

Re: gl1200 aspy vibration at 4000-5000rpm

Hi Macie jl 73, I have gone through the same with my 86 Aspy. I notice that after repairing the alternator drive (yes , with all it's springs, balls and clutch) vibration will set in between 4k and 5k. This drive also causes the 2000 rpm rattle when the friction material is no longer able to provide...

Re: How to winterize your motorcycle

Just a small addition, instead of draining the carbs, I always shut of fuel supply, and let the engine run until starved from fuel. This after a good ride. This makes sure all the fuel is out. Just as easy and no messing around to get to the drain plugs. Especially my gl1000 is sensitive to old fuel...
